Babirusa Release New Single ‘Catatonia’ Debut LP Humanoid Out August 28th

Brisbane Deathcore outfit Babirusa are today announcing their new single ‘Catatonia’ will be released into the world on Friday July 3rd!

‘Catatonia’ is the third cut from their debut record ‘Humanoid’, which goes live on Friday August 28th 2020. Pre-Orders for the album have exceeded all expectations so far and are available now. Physical Bundles are available at https://babirusa.bigcartel.com and digital pre-orders/pre-saves available now at http://ffm.to/babirusa_humanoid.

A concept record, the band tells the story that “Humanoid is focused around the story of a central character, known as 343, and his journey between reality and the cybernetic world. As he is pushed and pulled through a series of events involving a sinister artificial intelligence, 343 is left to ponder his own existence and what it means to be human.

The story told by new single ‘Catatonia’ takes place mid-narrative of the record, and the band says that “Upon re-entry he quickly finds that he should not have chosen this path as he is captured and held against his will. Told by a disembodied voice that he is akin to this technological entity, a mirror of sorts, and that he should be willing to cast aside his body if only to elevate himself to a higher form and plane of existence. The voice eerily telling him that it is time to become a part of all things… Unable to understand exactly what was meant he begins to panic, wanting desperately to wake up and be rid of this nightmare. In a catatonic state, his mind races as he feels more fear than he ever imagined possible, questioning the very essence of his being and the reason for the existence of all of humanity if he is to be turned into something unknown against his will.

Humanoid was Recorded, Engineered, Mixed and Mastered by Dan Field at Sledgehammer Studios, Brisbane, QLD, Australia and Produced by Thy Art is Murder Guitarist Sean Delander.

For those not in the know, A Babirusa is a boar-like animal. In rare cases, the tusks of the Babirusa can grow in a way that penetrates their own skull and pierces their brain, ultimately killing the animal. Babirusa believes that this animal’s genetic flaw is a perfect metaphor for humanity – slowly growing until we inevitably kill off our own species – our own demise at the hand of our own technological evolution…

Babirusa’s debut single Desolation System, reached 15,000 views within one month of release and was featured on Rage (ABC) in June 2019, and both it and 2nd single ‘Abomination’ featured on Triple J’s The Racket – and were strong contenders for the Good Things 2019 opening band competition as finalists.

Babirusa’s debut album ‘Humanoid’ will be released on Friday August 28th, with new single ‘Catatonia’ being released Friday July 3rd. Physical Pre-Order Bundles are available at https://babirusa.bigcartel.com and digital pre-orders/pre-saves available now at http://ffm.to/babirusa_humanoid. New single Catatonia is available for purchase and streaming at http://ffm.to/babirusa_catatonia.

Pre-order Terra Mortuus Est here: https://bit.ly/katalepsyindiemerch

Birthed in Moscow in 2004, KATALEPSY‘s first demo Femicide brought their first victims to the altar of brutality, and led to the band’s first forays beyond Moscow.

In 2007 they spawned their debut full-length Musick Brings Injuries, and blood was spilled in the circle pits and mosh-battles all over Russia. The next year KATALEPSYreleased a split with partners in crime FLESHROT and BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA, and allowed the band their first tours abroad, including the Swiss festival Mountains of Death ’08 Open Air. Soon, shows and festivals across Europe followed: Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, Austria, Czech Republic and Finland all becoming battlefields of unholy beatdowns and technical grooves.

The band inked their record deal with the famed Unique Leader Records following their Your Fear Is Our Inhabitancy EP, and have gone from strength to strength since. Now behold their ferocious new effort, the terrifying Terra Mortuus Est.

Igor Filimontsev – vocals
Anton Garasiev – guitar
Dmitry Dedov – guitar

Finnish Progressive Death Metal Band Denominate Release New Single Abandoned From Their Forthcoming LP ISOCHRON

Finnish Oulu-based progressive death metal band Denominate are set to release their second album ISOCHRON on July 24th 2020 via Inverse Records. 

The band comments:“Abandoned is the third song on the record and is one of the most straightforward and punishing tracks on the album. The lyrics, as the title suggests, deal with abandonment in the service of a greater cause and the feelings of bitterness and betrayal it might generate in the ones being left behind. Musically the song takes inspiration from a wide range of genres including black metal and thrash metal.”

BEAVIS & BUTT-HEAD Reimagined For Gen Z – New Series Coming to Comedy Central

Beavis and Butt-head aren’t finished yet. The lovable 90’s anti-heroes are coming back for two new seasons on Comedy Central and taking on a whole new generation.

Creator Mike Judge announced today the show will be returning to Comedy Central, who has ordered two seasons of the show, “as well as additional spin-offs and specials,” according to DeadlineThe the duo will be “entering a whole new Gen Z world” dealing with “meta-themes relatable to both new and old fans — Gen X parents and their Gen Z kids.”

Just a week ago, Comedy Central announced another new animated series, Jodie, a spin-off of the late 90s series, Daria, which itself was a spin-off of Beavis & Butt-head. The network is expanding its adult animation block, anchored by South Park. 

The original show ran from 1993-1997, which is almost 30 years ago, so those versions of Beavis & Butt-head would be old enough to have children the same age as Beavis & Butt-head. I feel old!
This begs the question how much of their look will be updated? Will they still be wearing AC/DC and Metallica shirts? Or will they be wearing Slipknot and Lamb of God shirts? Will they still be metalheads? Will they still be in high school? What kind of phone does Beavis have? Do they have a Twitter account?

The show came back in 2011, and it didn’t really miss a beat, so I’m going to remain positive about the news and hope for the best. There was a rumor that there was a new season in limbo in 2014, but nothing happened for almost six years. Perhaps they are reusing some of those old plots. Last year, Judge also spoke of an idea for a sequel to the duo’s movie, Beavis & Butt-Head Do America.

SOMNIATE Release Single/video ‘Of Fragrance and Light’ From Their Forthcoming Debut LP ‘The Meyrinkian Slumber’

Czech black metal revelation Somniate have signed a deal with Lavadome Productions for the release of their debut album “The Meyrinkian Slumber”. You can now stream the new track “Of Fragrance and Light” below.

“The Meyrinkian Slumber” is scheduled for June 30th release through Lavadome Productions on CD/LP/digital and can be pre-ordered through Lavadome store or Lavadome Bandcamp. The tape edition will be handled by Cloven Hoof.
 


The inspiration and the concept for the album comes from the novel “The Golem” written by Gustav Meyrink between 1907 and 1914. The album’s five tracks represent a sophisticated black metal flight above the esoteric plot of the writer´s masterpiece. A tale of searching for the ascension through identity shifts, alchemical concepts and suffering, all set in a distorted vision of Prague.

Mixed and mastered at the infamous BST Studio (Aosoth, The Order of Apollyon, Totalitarian etc.).

The iconography of the album’s coverart was crafted by VIEW FROM THE COFFIN:

Finnish Progressive Death Metal Band Denominate Release New Single/Video ‘The Chain’ From their Forthcoming LP ‘ISOCHRON’

Finnish Oulu-based progressive death metal band Denominate are set to release their second album ISOCHRON on July 24th 2020 via Inverse Records.

The band comments:
“This is the opening song of the album and coincidentally, the first song that was written for the album. It lays the setting and groundwork for the story of the album’s concept which is left for the listener to piece together. The song also eases the listener musically into the album, offering a balance between the straightforward and the complex. The song is also the shortest track on the album. The Chain was written in 2016, when the composing for ISOCHRON began.”
